is really happening in america. come on, let's go. hello, america. hope and change. it was a movement that surged barack obama into the white house. but it is not the first time america has seen this sort ofer political uprising of hope and change and progress. there was hope and change wayne back in the early 20th century but the name was different. different. it was progressivism. you heard that before. are you a progressive? it was the shiny new car. well, now wait a minute, what happened? well, back in the early 20th century, everybody wanted to take it for a spin. progressivism had no political boundaries. the democrats like woodrow wilson loved it. republicans, teddy roosevelt, loved it. america was stuck in a rut. we needed to make progress. how better to break free than to use progressive tactics? the message resonated with so many americans and progressives began winning elections. and then, they started to govern. that's where the problem came in. in the response to the repeated bank runs in the early 1900s, progressives came up with an idea. the federal reserve system. this

for $10 million ahead of what it called america's birth certificate. the math that gave america its name. that $10 million was the most the library had ever spent on anything. it was also almost $2 million more than had recently been paid for an original copy of the declaration of independence, and that kind of caught my attention. i never heard of the map or had seen the map but the library seemed to think it was the most valuable piece and the market even seemed to think it was more than an original copy of the declaration of independence. so, i wanted to find out more and at this point i was thinking maybe i would do an article, short piece for the alana tech. so i did some research and got the basics of the story pretty quickly. early in the 1500's in the eastern part of france in the mountains there was a small group of scholars among them the mapmaker martin and he had come across letters and at least one early sailors chart showing the coastlines of the new world and they decided that what they were reading about and see on the charts was not a part of asia as most people had assu
that this is matched by a historic effort that extends beyond our government, because america has no greater resource than the strength and the compassion of the american people. we just met in the oval office, an office they both know well, and i'm pleased that president george w. bush and president bill clinton have agreed to lead a major fund-raising effort for relief. the clinton/bush haiti fund. on behalf of the american people, i want to thank both of you for returning to service and leading this urgent mission. this is a model that works. after the terrible tsunami in asia, president bush turned to president clinton and the first president bush to lead a similar fund. that effort raised substantial resources for the victims of that disaster, money that helped save lives, deliver aid and rebuild communities. and that's exactly what the people of haiti desperately need right now. every day that goes by, we learn more about the horrifying scope of this catastrophe -- destruction and suffering that defies comprehension, entire communities buried under mountains of concrete, families sleeping in th
behind america. but i was very aware from the early stages of this that also the american mind set had changed dramatically and frankly mine had as well, when i talk to other leaders particularly in europe i didn't get the same impression really. and so one thing i was anxious to do because we put together a coalition of afghanistan was to put together a coalition again to deal with saddam hussein and therefore the united nations route was then just important for all sorts of political reasons, legal reasons and so on, it was to do with the internal politics of the u.k.. it was also important to me because i didn't want america to feel that it had no option but to do it on its own. >> are you saying to me that that was the kind of agreed policy with which he went to crawford on the eve of crawford? is that what you intended to achieve at crawford? >> what we intended to achieve was to get a sense from the americans as to what they wanted to do and this would be best done between president bush and myself and really to then get the sense how our own strategy would have to evolve in the
